Lion Past President Ron Erwin (#24) won the Tail Twister’s pot on the first drawing.
 
Attendance was 20 members present plus John Erdogmus, an ASU student from Turkey, who assisted our speaker in his power point presentation.
A BIG ROAR OF THANKS goes to Lion Bill Levins for his work in printing and getting our club directory up to date for each member to have. Great Job Lion Bill.
 
Remember the Board of Directors meeting next week, Thursday, August 14th at 6:30 AM at Couch’s Restaurant. This is an excellent opportunity to make up that missed meeting for your 100% attendance. Remember missed meetings should be made up within 10 days either before or after the missed meeting. Advise our secretary of made up meetings.
 
Our program this week was most informative by Dr. G. Daniel Howard CGFM. CFRE. ASU Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Research. Dr. Howard talked about the globalization of ASU and bringing the world to ASU. Projected international student enrollment for the Fall 2008 is 200 new students and 150 students returning. Some of the countries from which substantial members of international students will attend ASU are India, China, Nepal, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Korea, and Japan. The economic impact to Jonesboro for each 100 international students will amount to $3.75 million dollars. What can we do to help this program at ASU - make friends with international students, encourage others to befriend international students and become a member of the Community Friends Program.
 
Scheduled programs:
August 12 - Jonesboro Sun Editor, Roy Ockert, speaking about the role of the media in our community.
 
August 19 - Business meeting
 
August 26 - ASU Head Football Coach Steve Roberts, talking about the Red Wolves first season
 
Invite a guest next week. Also, invite an MIA member (we have several of these we are missing each Tuesday morning).
